The Pirates


Wow! Just WOW! The Pirates has to be the most kick-ass film I’ve seen in a while. I had trouble not shouting out expletives when something awesome happened. This Korean movie is just so cool, so well-done and so exciting. Honestly, I can’t really think of any parts that lagged or were silly.

The movie is set during the Joseon Dynasty. When envoys are coming home from the Emperor with the new name and seal of their country (Joseon) they are set upon by a sperm whale that they manage to piss off. The whale destroys their ship and accidentally swallows the seal. To keep it quiet in the still turbulent times of the Dynasty they hire Captain Yeo-wul, a pirate, to find the whale and retrieve it. Jang-Sa Jung is a bandit chief who hears about this occurring and in the hopes of getting a reward sets out as well to capture the whale.

Don’t be fooled though by the plot. This movie is action-packed! The graphics are stunning and the choreography is amazing. This movie is completely the equivalent of the state-side Pirates of the Caribbean and in some ways maybe even better. I would suggest this film to anyone, because, quite frankly, it’s awesome. I seriously want to watch it again. It’s funny, exciting, great story, great characters and amazing (have I said that already?)



I am an aspiring writer who has devoted the better part of my life to English. I decided to write reviews because every time I read a book (which is far less then it should be) or a good show (which is way more) I am just bursting with information that I want to relay to someone, anyone, because what I just saw or read was just so awesome. Please, enjoy! Disclaimer: I do not own nor am I associated with the related books, shows or movies or their consequent companies. This blog is for fun and information.
